I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. allow for user-defined tags to be assigned to model elements so that you build display filters based on those tags...

    Imagine being able to assigned user-defined tags to model elements and then filter those model elements in a diagram by creating an expression based upon tags. These tags could represent anything you want like subsystems, user roles, sprints, you name it. This was an ability of the old OOATool from Object International back in the late 1980's.

  2. Allow editing of toolbar fonts

    On my high def screen the toolbar fonts are far too small to read. Can we add a field to set the size?

  3. artifact instance deploy to node instance

    StarUML does not allow an artifact instance to deploy to a node instance.

    An error "Invalid connection (UMLDeployment)" is displayed.

    See https://www.uml-diagrams.org/deployment-diagrams-reference.html

  4. Diagram background-color

    Please let us change diagram background color, which is now white. White is too aggressive for eyes in dark environment ... I would prefer to change to some greyish tone.

  8. Add a scrollbar to zoom in/out

    We need a scrollbar to zoom in and zoom out better and if it's positioned in the status bar it would be great.

  9. fix the bug related to removal of data type from the model

    If for example a class is removed from the model the attributes usind it as a data type show as if it is still in the model.

    Currently there is no way to get back the associations which have been removed from the diagram, but not from the model

  11. fix problem which causes first attempt to open another model to fail

    Currently attempt to open another model fails almost every time in error (OSX). Only indication of that is a quick error message which is shown just briefly and easy to miss. After failure StartUML opens previous model which could lead to loss of data if user doesn't notice it. Second attempt to open the model works always.

  13. E-R Diagram function is too simple.

    It' better to add more icons like a weak entity, weak relationship to represent the relationship among entities. For now, I cannot even draw a diamond to show relationship.

  14. Create "back of napkin" style option for diagram

    I am using StarUML as an agile means to communicate initial sketches of system design prior to any code being written.

    As such these designs typically explore hypothesis about the system design. It would be great if the diagrams could reflect this by looking more informal and hand drawn.

    I think the current rendering of the diagrams looks great as formal designs.

    For Agile development, it would be great to be less formal and convey to the team they have wiggle room to make adjustments on the design.

  15. Bug: wordWrap not working for UMLNoteView in 3.1.0.

    The wordWrap property does not take effect.

    New notes in 3.1.0 can't wordWrap set to true can resize width less than the line length. And the text can only show in a single line.

  16. Simplify interface insertion

    Interfaces are awkward to place in a model.
    You have to place the round-end first and then haphazardly try to connect to it with an association.

    It would be far better to simply plus the whole lollypop in one go.

  17. Support EERD: add generalization/specialization relationship to ERD diagrams

    EERD are ERD with a couple of extensions.
    See https://www.lucidchart.com/pages/enhanced-entity-relationship-diagram
    I'm currently needing those to fulfill a work requirement.

  18. Double click to resize app window to fit screen (MacOS)

    Most apps on the Mac use double click above the toolbar (the bar containing the Close, Minimize and Maximize icons on the left) to resize the app to fit the screen. This would be very useful since the app always starts as a partial screen. Automatically fit the app to the fit the screen at startup also would be an alternative solution.

  19. Ability to change text color outside the diagram

    I can change the theme to light or dark, but in both themes the text remains some form of gray that's not as easy to seperate from the background as it could be. If I switch to the light theme the shadow effect even makes the text look slightly strange.

    Any way to change the text color so the text will stand out more will be highly appreciated.

  20. Allow us to display namespaces in a fully qualified format with double colon separators in between names

    Current namespaces is in the following format:
    "from package"

    Instead have namespaces displayed in the following format:
    "package::subpackage::name"
